Plans to build Belfast’s biggest exhibition space have been revealed today by the new CEO of Titanic Quarter.
Recently appointed David Gavaghan said the company have plans to develop a new Titanic Exhibition Centre (TEC) which will be the largest dedicated exhibition venue in the city.
A planning proposal for a 6,000 square metre, temporary building on the Queen’s Road, opposite the Titanic Studios, will be lodged later this month.
The longer-term plan is to develop a purpose-built, permanent TEC that will be on a par with facilities such as Glasgow’s Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre (SECC) and Dublin’s RDS and Conference Centre which regularly host major international events.
Total usable exhibition space in the TEC will amount to 5,000 square metres, which will accommodate exhibitions with 20,000 visitors and 300 exhibitors.
